Triage stalled work-in-progress: 2020-08-02
Some issues on Tails' GitLab, currently assigned to you, seem to require updating in order to:
- better reflect your plans
- bring down your amount of work-in-progress to a sustainable level
- encourage team work and increase the chances that someone finishes the work
Below, there's a section titled with your GitLab username, that lists the issues assigned to you, in 'Doing' state, that were not updated since more than 3 months.
For each such issue, you have a few options, such as:
Unassign yourself. That's fine. If it really matters, someone else, possibly you, may pick it up later.
Then, if the issue is relevant for a Tails team, bring it to their attention; else, forget it and take care of yourself :)
If you think you can realistically come back to it and finish the work in the next months, say so on the issue, for example by replacing the "Doing" label with "To Do" and setting a suitable milestone.
This will communicate your plans to the rest of the project and ensure the task pops up on your radar at a suitable time.
Of course, you can still realize later that it is not going to work as planned, and revisit today's choice.
